Liposonix is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to kill off fat cells in a localised region of the body. After the fat cells are destroyed, the body’s natural processes will absorb the dead cells over time, resulting in lesser fat cells in those areas, and a slimmer waistline.
Unlike the commonly known liposuction, Liposonix is not a surgical procedure. Instead, the treatment uses a specific machine that deliver the HIFU energy to the layer of fat underneath the skin.
It is an excellent option to consider, especially if the fat is too dense for the area to be sucked into the applicator, as in the case of Coolsculpting by Zeltiq. While Coolsculpting is an excellent treatment, the fat must be sucked into the applicator for it to work. Liposonix works on flat surfaces without the constraint of Coolsculpting.
Here are three reasons why Liposonix can be the fat-loss solution you have been waiting for.
Liposonix is non-surgical
A non-surgical treatment means that there is virtually no down-time needed after the procedure; patients who undergo Liposonix may immediately resume their daily activities after the one-hour procedure is completed. Typically, a surgical procedure would require days of leave from work, for the patient to recover. With Liposonix, you can be back at work immediately after leaving the clinic.
As the procedure is non-invasive, numbing cream is not applied to the treated areas. Liposonix also does not carry the risks that usually come with surgery.
During the procedure, patients may feel a slight discomfort as energy is sent to the surface beneath the skin. At EHA Clinic, we will give patients a painkiller before the treatment. Patients who have concerns about the discomfort during the procedure should consult their aesthetic doctor before the treatment begins.
Liposonix is an effective fat-loss procedure
Despite not being a surgical procedure, Liposonix is an extremely effective treatment to remove fat in unwanted places. The best candidates for Liposonix are patients who are leading active and healthy lifestyles, but want to reduce their waistline even further. Just one Liposonix treatment may help the individual lose up to 4cm to 5cm on the waist, which is equivalent to about one pant or dress size.
As the Liposonix treatment directly destroys fat cells underneath the skin, it is a guarantee that there will be less fat in the area after the treatment is complete. This is unlike some other non-surgical weight loss treatments, which aim to reduce water in the body or fats stored in the cells. With Liposonix, fat will never return to the destroyed cells. As such, Liposonix is best used to treat stubborn body fat that refuse to budge despite much effort. Patients who undergo the treatment will have a slimmer, smoother and more toned appearance.
Liposonix is not a weight loss solution, and is not a replacement for an active and healthy lifestyle.
Liposonix can be tailored to suit your fat-loss needs
Liposonix works in many different areas on the body, and not just the waist. While other countouring devices can slim down parts of the body, they are often limited in which areas they can be used on. The Liposonix system is very versatile, and can be used on the thighs, back, and buttocks. Consult your aesthetic doctor if you would like to apply Liposonix in these other areas.
Liposonix is a very effective solution to resistant pockets of fat all over the body. It is approved for use in Singapore’s aesthetic clinics and is offered by EHA Clinic. Contact us today at 6235 3325 to enquire about Liposonix.
